Coterie Crush on Atlanta Designer Lori May

Sep 11 2013

by Cheri Leavy

We have enjoyed getting to know Atlanta designer Lori May. Her website and blog show off her traditional and edited style with a modern flair. We love that the blog has plenty of tutorial and delves into design topics ranging from children’s rooms and fixture finishes.

Lori May is a Southern interior designer to watch. She has been featured in Front and Main, on the cover of Little Black Dress/Little Red Wagon, and HGTV’s Design Wars where she was selected as the show’s top designer.

Editor’s Note: Lori is headed to Nashville to join us at The Southern C Summit in October and we can’t wait to meet in person!

Check out Lori’s style and favorites here…


Barbara Barry’s collection for Kravet


Anything white. You can use it everyday or dress it up. Perfect!


Too many favorites to choose from! Three of my favorites from one my most recent projects: All from Sherwin Williams…Anew Gray, Oyster Bay, Urbane Bronze


Pure Style Home and Design Indulgence


Diptyque’s Baies


So many great shops here in Atlanta, but Scott’s is my go to!


The timeless beauty of Phoebe Howard, the bold style of Tobi Fairley and the fresh approach of Windsor Smith.


Holly Irwin – I love her work and I’m so lucky to call her a friend as well.


My husband’s photos. He has taken beautiful photos since high school and they are some of my most prized possessions.


My front porch, a glass of wine and good friends
